thanks to everyone for the nice welcome!
We fish mainly the AuSable and the Manistee in Michigan. We also like the Black and the Pine. We have also fished the Pere Marquette and the Little Manistee but prefer the others for trout on dries.
In Montana, we like the Blackfoot, Clark fork, NF Blackfoot, Rock Ck around Missoula. Around Twin bridges we really like the Big Hole, Ruby, Beaverhead, Jefferson, Boulder, and other smaller creeks. We have also fished in and around Yellowstone on the Madison, Gallatin, Firehole, Nez perce.
Idaho we have fished the St Joe and Lochsa.
My wife is the better trout fisher with dries. She just doesn't give up on a fish and nearly always gets a take through persistence or fly changes or both.
I've learned a lot fishing with her. We mainly wade fish, just don't have the funds to be guided all the time. I fish for steelhead a lot also but maybe I'll save that for another post.
